FKF Branches Divided Over Election Format System

Two Western Kenya branches have disagreed on the format to be used during the forthcoming Football Kenya Federation elections.

Some participants led by Vihiga sub-branch chairman Tony Kweya and his Busia counterpart William Musumba, wants the old format of using branches and sub branches replaced by counties in deciding delegates to feature in the November’s FKF polls.

However, Musumba said they will abide by Fifa rules in the forthcoming FKF AGM in Nairobi on August 28. The meeting was attended by officials from Western and North Western branches and eight sub branches including Busia, Teso, Mt. Elgon, Bungoma, Lugari, Kakamega, Butere/Mumias and Vihiga.

Also in attendance was Western branch representative Elly Mukolwe, Western branch chairman Andrew Amukoa and his Bungoma counterpart, Moses Kubai.

During the resolutions read by Western branch secretary George Barasa, the participants agreed to speak with one voice and ensure all votes from the region goes into one basket during the November polls.

They vowed to work as a united front and invited all candidates for the top seat to campaign in the area without fear. Musumba said chances are high that the region might field its own candidate in the November polls but noted that the decision will be made in Webuye during their next meeting.
